I want to thank you for excellent service -- I could not ask for better. Your web site was easy to use and to order from. I received a quick confirmation of the order, which even seemed personalized confirmation of shipping. And then it arrived 3-4 days earlier than I would have expected. And it was the right product, right size, right mount. And it was all done in about 15 minutes for me- saved me driving time, gas costs, and having to special order unstocked merchandise locally-- less expensive when all those factored in. I'm delighted.

E trailer is a very good Co, with a great ion of products...However this particular spare tire mount is crap. Treads were rough and not easy to spin nutbracket.. Threw it in the woods and spent a little extra on a different style.

Thank you for the feedback. What did you end up going with instead?

This spare tire carrier works great . Due to where I had to mount it I needed to space it out a bit. Two short peices of pipe and a couple of large washers would work but I have welding capability so I made a fancy one...

I had a boat trailer and a new spare tire wheel/combo with no place to mount it. Not any longer! For $19 and change and what should have been 5 minutes of my time( I don't ever read instructions) the spare was securely mounted to my trailer.

This item worked perfectly! It enabled me to mount my spare trailer tire in the perfect location and secure with a pad lock. This was a quick and easy solution!

This has been the perfect solution to mounting my spare tire to my utility trailer.

This bracket works well for normal tires, but not so good for the wider tires on my snowmobile trailer. I wasn’t able to use the locking brackets, and ended up replacing them with 1/2 fine thread nuts.



- FETCLB0201
by:

I found this barely usable, thank goodness I don't have to use it often. Either I am hard to please or the other reviewers are all using it on TOP of the trailer beam and they would not see my problem. If possible I will never mount a tire on top of the trailer beam as water collects in the tire, ultimately degrading its appearance and functionality. Anyway... The good It's inexpensive, and the handy lockable bracket type nuts are easier to use than the typical locks I've had for spare trailer tires / wheels. You can match locks and keys with your other trailer locks. If you have room for it under your boat and plan on using it with the tire sitting on top of the trailer beam it's relatively easy to use, but those L-O-N-G threaded rods are really excessively long especially if you are using smaller tires than a full sized auto tire. The not so good. If on the other hand you want to mount it on the SIDE of the trailer beam, it's extremely difficult to mount sideways on the trailer. Holding the tire, bracket and rotating the oddly shaped "nuts" is difficult in the best conditions, at night on a rainy, hot night or freezing interstate, I shudder to think how it will be to change a tire. If the threaded rod were threaded all the way down the shaft, and a steel flat bar with two holes and two nuts securing it to the frame it would be a FAR better product. Another thing I did was to make a flat bar with two holes so I could use a standard 1/2x20 tpi lug nut and secure it to the frame. Then you could cut the L-O-N-G threaded portion and use a standard cross lug wrench. Of course you lose the locking feature this way. If "I" were the maker, I'd offer this bar as an alternative installing method. One last nit... I know these are one size fits all tires and trailers, but those L-O-N-G threaded rods are a pain to rotate the nut brackets ALL the way down. Add a little rust in the mix and you can see it can be an issue. I do not think they NEED to be that long.

This is a good product - functional and useful for deterring thieves from stealing your spare wheel/tire. I didn't give it 5 stars because the thread pitch is not the same as standard lug nuts so you will have to tighten it down with the locking brackets or get 1/2" nuts with correct pitch at the hardware store. I would have preferred to tighten it down with lug nuts and screw on the locking brackets over them, but that won't work. And they don't claim that will work in the description of the product. Still, this is a clever and economical alternative to having your spare tire/wheel stolen.

I am not a big online shopper, but if I need anything for a trailer or other product that etrailer has I will not hesitate to do business with them again. My order was shipped quickly and was exactly what I ordered and worked great on my trailer for a spare tire carrier. Great service.



- FETCLB0201

This spare tire mount works perfect for my trailer holding the tire in place and with the extra security feature there is no worries of someone stealing the tire because of the locking mechanism.

by:

Very simple and holding up well after a year.



- FETCLB0201
by:

The product works just as advertised. It took no longer than five minutes to install the spare tire to its new location on the trailer frame and is there to stay until it becomes necessary to utilize it--which hopefully is never. The slot for the padlock is only about 1/4" so if you do not buy the lock that goes with the bracket plan on using a padlock with a bale of this size.

Ask the Experts about this Fulton Spare Tire Carrier

  • Can Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier be Mounted Under Tongue
    Yes, if you want to mount it under your trailer tongue you could do that with the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier # FETCLB0201. This will fit a trailer frame/tongue up to 3" wide and fits 8", 9", 12", 13", 14" and 15" wheels with 4 or 5 lugs, a combination which covers the good majority of trailers with that size frame. I have added a link below to a video review for you to check out as well of the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier # FETCLB0201.

  • How Does the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier # FETCLB0201 Lock a Wheel to the Trailer
    Actually when you use the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier # FETCLB0201 that you referenced you do not use nuts to secure the U-bolt. Each of the brackets are threaded and basically become the nuts that hold the tire to the U-bolt. You will just need to tighten each bracket as if it is a nut till the wheel is held securely, line up the brackets so they face each other and then run a lock through them.

  • Are Threads on Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier 1/2" - 20
    Yes, the threads on the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier # FETCLB0201 are 1/2" - 20. This same carrier is available with a lock as part # FETCHL0700 or with lugs and a lock as part # FETCSTL0701.

  • Recommended Spare Tire Mount for 6-Lug Wheels
    The Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier - Lockable # FETCLB0201 is not compatible with 6 lug wheels. It is only compatible with 4 or 5 lug wheels. For your 6 lug wheels, I recommend the Bumper Mounted Tire Carrier - U-Bolt Mount # TR-1 or the Ultra-Fab Folding Spare Tire Carrier for Trailers and RVs - Bumper Mount # UF15-954730. Either of these will work with 6 lug wheels. With either of these, you can use the Fulton Spare Tire Carrier Lock # FSTL0603 to secure your investment.

  • Trailer Spare Tire Carrier Recommendation for a 15 inch Spare with 5 on 5 inch Bolt Pattern
    Yes, for a spare tire carrier that will accommodate a spare tire with a 5 on 5 inch bolt pattern you have a couple options. You could use a Trailer Spare Tire Carrier # DL22128. If you are interested in a hitch mounted spare tire carrier for a 2x2 hitch shank I recommend # Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # C31006. This spare tire carrier is a universal fit item designed to fit as many size tire/wheels as possible. I have included a video review of part # C31006...

  • What Size Trailer Tongue Does the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier - Lockable, # FETCLB0201 Fit
    The internal width of the u-bolt on the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier - Lockable, # FETCLB0201, is 3 inches, so it will fit on a 3 inch trailer tongue.

  • Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier Compatibility with Angle Iron Frame Trailer
    The Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier - Lockable # FETCLB0201 or the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier with Wheel Nut Lock # FETCSTL0701 will work with your bolt pattern. I've attached a video to show the installation on a similar angle iron frame to assist. The angle iron can cause wear over time on the sidewall of the tire, so I recommend rotating the spare every so often to give you less wear on a single part of the tire.

  • How Long Is The Fulton Spare Tire Carrier FETCLB0201
    The Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier # FETCLB0201 will measure 9-5/8" long and 4-5/8" wide going outside to outside. This will also fit frames up to 3" wide. I included a full diagram with all measurements for you to take a look at as well.

  • Recommended Spare Tire Carrier for 8 Inch Wheel on 3 Inch Tube Trailer Frame
    The Demco # DM15851-76 Spare Tire Carrier you'd looked at wouldn't work for you, as the mounting plate for the tire wouldn't fit inside the wheel. I'd recommend using a simple U-bolt style locking spare tire carrier like # FETCLB0201. The carrier is compatible with 8 inch wheels like what your 4.80-8 tire is mounted on and fits trailer frames up to 3 inches wide. I've provide a photo showing the carrier installed on a trailer frame in a similar spot to where you're planning on mounting...

  • Recommended Spare Tire With 5 On 4-1/2 Inch Bolt Pattern Size 4.80x12
    For your 5x8 Carry-On utility trailer, I recommend the Kenda 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" White Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - Load Range C # AM30660. You want to make sure your spare tire not only matches size, but also matches the load capacity of your current tires. I recommend using the CE Smith Spare Tire Cover - 12" Diameter x 6-1/2" Wide Trailer Tires - Black # CE27410 to protect your spare from UV and rot. If you don't have a tire carrier, I recommend the Fulton Economy Spare Tire...
